20 Questions with Bridge

By L.C. Chase

 

G’day everyone! Welcome to my Let It Ride blog tour and a peek into the world of rodeo cowboys. (The official schedule can be found here.) This wouldn’t be a proper tour without some prezzies, of course. Read on for giveaway details—and one very special prize! Thank you to Long and Short Reviews for hosting my cowboys, and to all of you for hopping in the saddle to ride along!

For today’s post, I was thinking it might be fun to have a little interview with pickup man extraordinaire, Bridge Sullivan. I found him setting up a table for their traditional post-rodeo poker game, and he was gracious enough to sit down and answer a few…speed questions. I call them speed because I have a little stopwatch and he has 15 seconds to answer each one. Oh, the pressure. 😉

 

How old are you?

28 but I look younger. [he preens]

 

What do you think your life expectancy is?

Hell if I know. Today’s all I’ve got so I have to make the most of it, right?

 

What is your height?

Six feet two inches.

 

What is your job?

Pickup man!

 

What is your favorite color?

[his eyes go all dreamy for a second] Violet.

 

Nice! Okay, what’s your favorite food?

Enchiladas. The best in all of California are right here in Folsom.

 

I’ll take your word on that. What’s your favorite beverage?

Iced tea with a big fat lemon wedge.

 

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Gotta go with chocolate. Who doesn’t like chocolate? By the way, do my questions count against the 20 questions?

 

Nice try. Next question: What are you most afraid of?

That this interview will never end.

 

Ha-ha. Do you hate anyone?

There are a couple people I don’t want anything to do with, but I don’t hate them. Life’s too short to waste on hating when you can be happier loving.

 

*Swoon*Have any deep dark secrets?

Maybe. [he gives me a crooked grin]

 

Do you love anyone?

Maybe. [his grin stretches into a smile]

 

What do you do to relax?

Kick back with my friends, play some poker, shoot some pool.

 

What are you going to do now?

Play poker!

 

Do you have any pets?

Can horses be pets? I have five of them.

 

Who is your hero?

At the risk of offending Kent, Marty’s my hero. He’s one of the strongest, bravest, kindest, most genuine people I know, and I would do anything for him.

 

[I have to admit I have a soft spot for Marty too] What is your greatest weakness?

Hmm…letting you talk me into this. [he winks] Are we are 20 yet?

 

Almost. Where is your head at?

[he glances away and I follow his gaze to see Eric looking back]

 

Next! Where did you lose your virginity?

In a barn when I was fifteen.

 

Why were you born?

To kick ass!

 

LOL! Congratulations, you survived 20 questions.

Finally. You should stay and play a few hands with us. [and I do]

The Blurb:

 

Pickup man Bridge Sullivan is the kind of cowboy everyone wants—as a brother, a friend, a lover. People think he’s straight, but Bridge isn’t one for labels, and when a sexy male paramedic jump-starts his heart, he charges in with all guns blazing.

 

New York City transplant Eric Palmer grew up in foster care. While he always had a roof over his head, he never felt love or a sense of belonging . . . until he joined the California rodeo circuit as a paramedic and found a band of brothers who took him in as one of their own. Now, one in particular is making Eric’s pulse race.

 

When things heat up between Bridge and Eric, Bridge has to prove to Eric he’s not just experimenting with the rougher sex, while Eric must overcome his fears of being unwanted and cast aside. He knows that trusting Bridge may be the key to his happy ever after, but getting in the saddle is much, much easier than learning to let it ride.

  1. 1. Tough choice between John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. I think it may depend on my mood or the day who wins. Bondie from the Good, The Bad, and The Ugly was fabulous and a classic!

    2. Two cowvoys embracing while on one horse facing a sunset.

  2. 1. John Wayne
    2. cowboy on horseback with the Canadian mountains in the background

  3. I would say Clint Eastwood in Hang Em High. I was going to say Paul Newman in Hombre but he’s not exactly a cowboy in that.

    The picture….hmm…. two cowboys getting cozy together?

  4. Please count me in. Thanks!

  5. 1. My favorite cowboys of all time are the guys from Falls Chance Ranch. I would highly recommend the series to anyone!

    2. My guess is a cowboy on a bucking bull, to go with the rodeo theme of your very interesting sounding new book!

    • Thanks for the heads up on Falls Chance. I’ll have to check that out.
      I actually have an older drawing of a cowboy on a bucking bull, but your guess is an excellent one. 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by!

      • Oh Mell Eight is right you must read up about the Fall Chance Ranch men – its an online story in series of four (at the moment) books and several short stories. The major part of book four and some of the anthologies of short stories are only available to those that join their yahoo group. Oh you will love super alpha protector Flynn, nurturing alpha Paul, mystically powerful alpha Jasper, passionate brat Riley and intelligent (Bond) worn out executive brat (with top tendencies) Dale. It is a polymorphic household with domestic discipline, but you would not guess that from the onset. That is all I will say.

  6. I have a new one for you, from me, this time a favourite fictional cowboy – I love the partnership of cowboy Dakota Holden & his veterinary partner Wally Schumacher from Andrew Grey’s ‘Range’ series. Dakota and Wally are the pivotal characters throughout the series, they are loving, devoted to friends and family, supportive, hot, and inspirational.
